Golden Delicious, 8 x 8 " oil on gessobord panel, Fay Terry ©2012
I have one of those circular apple cutters that quickly renders eight neat pieces of apple. It comes in handy, but I still prefer the knife. I had not eaten a Golden Delicious apple in quite a while because they don't seem as flavorful as they once were. There are so many new and interesting apple varieties.
After the painting was completed, I tried this apple- it did not disappoint. The apple was fun to paint, and delicious. However, my real love in this painting is the tablecloth. I will show more of it the next time I use it in a painting!
